I don't know what to return

The compiler is saying that I need to return something for the code to be correct, but I haven't created any array or variables that would expect me to return anything.

PictureBook.java
public class PictureBook
{
    public String mTitle()
    {

      return ;
    }
}

It looks like you are creating a method mTitle, which returns a string value. If your intention is to create a member variable to store data in it, all you have to do is:

public class PictureBook {
   //define a string member variable
      String mTitle;
}

Then later you can create a getter and a setter for the string 'mTitle'.

Hope it make sense!

Happy Coding!

Theyre not asking you to return anything. Just create a class & a string, thats it.
